Women In The Baking Industry? Just Up Front
Great film that does an excellent job of surveying the baking industry as it sat in 1946. Shows the various steps and methoods in bread making, and discusses how one trains for these jobs, and the difference between a large commercial bakery, and a small mom & pop outfit (which are rather rare anymore - for reasons that will become clear to you when you view this film).
Wish there were still Mom & Pop bakeries; i.e., individual or small local chains with authentic European breads (not Panera junk and not the crummy grocery store bakeries - the real thing). I doubt we'll ever see that again. So if you want good bread these days, you'll just have to learn to make your own.

Warning: White Bread Ahead!
These 'Your Life's Work' films are so funny, as they present 'qualifications' to what is needed to be a baker, which of course involves Physics, chemistry and mathematics. A wide variety of bakery jobs are shown and described specifically here, like the pan loader. "The pan loader loads the dough into the pan'. The film poo-poo's the idea of women getting into the baking industry instead saying that "In some bakeries women are employed in light work such as putting frosting on rolls or cakes. but in retail business, women are in greatest demand as salespersons". So THERE. Reccomended!
